Issued: 3/13/2020 – by Jubilee Brown, MD, AAGL President
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the AAGL Board of Directors, I want to take this moment to recognize that these are unprecedented times. We are in the midst of a growing pandemic with COVID-19, and while it affects all of us, it affects some more than others.
For many of us, this is the first experience with a pandemic in our professional careers. Even for those of us practicing for longer than that, it is arguably the most impactful disease outbreak we have seen.
This situation is evolving so rapidly that responses today may be different from responses tomorrow or next week. As of now, there are no changes to existing AAGL events, though these will be continually updated and reconsidered as appropriate.
If there are items that come up that you think warrant attention, or that you have questions or concerns about, please do let us know, and we will do our best to address your concerns honestly, quickly, and directly.
Our hearts are with our friends who are in the midst of this crisis and we wish everyone health and safety.
Jubilee Brown, MD
